Exploring the Possibilities for the New Magna-Tiles® X Shape with Movable Magnets

The Magna-Tiles® Freestyle 40-Piece Set contains new and innovative tiles from Valtech LLC that will revolutionize your Magna-Tiles® creations! Each X piece is a patented magnetic shape featuring nine moveable magnets, allowing you and your children to build in any direction and connect tiles wherever you please. Here, Magna-Tiles® explores the many possibilities for the hours of unstructured, free play and STEM learning activities that our new X-shaped tiles can provide.

What Is the Magna-Tiles® Freestyle 40-Piece Set?

Magna-Tiles® began as the vision of a Japanese math teacher who wanted to provide his students with a hands-on, engaging way to learn about geometry. Today, our products can be found in homes and classrooms around the world. With Magna-Tiles®, Magna-Tiles® Structures, and Magna-Qubix®, students have the best chance for success and can grasp concepts that they might not be able to understand by learning on a screen – all while benefiting from imaginative, instruction-free play that will keep them entertained for hours on end.

Like all Magna-Tiles® products, the new X pieces in the Magna-Tiles® Freestyle 40-Piece Set are crafted with the same commitment to quality that you expect from the makers of the original magnetic toys for kids. The tiles are resistant to damage, engineered to withstand years of indoor and outdoor use, and built with powerful magnets that “click” when connected to another piece. All of our products are compatible with each other, so don’t worry about mixing tiles from different sets.

What Can Our X-Shaped Tiles Be Used For?

Our X shapes are designed with more magnetic connection points for a totally freestyle building experience. The unique movable magnets open limitless possibilities, and children can place tiles next to, in the center, and on top of other tiles. Thanks to their construction, the X-shaped pieces in the Magna-Tiles® Freestyle 40-Piece Set are used in a variety of ways, including:

Creative Playtime for the Entire Family

With these new X magnetic shapes, you and your children can build whatever your imagination dreams up! Layer the tiles on top of each other to create the feathers of a bird or the shingles on a roof. Blue tiles can also be layered together to create the aesthetic of a running river, and red tiles can be arranged to look like lava. And because the X tiles contain multiple free-moving magnets, they make the perfect pieces for building windmills or gears that spin. Or you can even use magnetic alphabets and numbers or other fridge magnets tools that can click to the center of each X shape to enhance learning and play – the possibilities are truly endless!

Educational Resources for Teachers and Parents

When you work on a Magna-Tiles® project in a family or team environment, children will be exploring STEM subjects while developing important social and communication skills. By handling Magna-Tiles®, children also develop their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, which will help them perform to their greatest potential later in life. It’s no wonder why Magna-Tiles® magnetic building toys, especially our X shapes, are fixtures in classrooms and homeschooling settings across the country.
